Candy Cane Framed Cookies

They’re candy canes! They’re cookies! They’re both!

This is a funky concoction I came up with – it’s looks weird, but it is really two treats in one. you can break off the cookie from the heart or eat it as one – your choice…


Mini-candy canes
Cookie sheet
Parchment paper
Cookie dough (sugar or chocolate is best)
Cookie sheet, oven mitt


Place on cookie sheet, lined with parchment paper, bake for 3 minutes at 300F degrees.

Pinch off cookie dough in small gumball sized balls, bake according to package directions.

Set the oven to 300F degrees. Line the cookie sheet with parchment paper. Remove the wrappers from the candy canes. Place the candy canes on the cookie sheet in heart shapes. Bake for THREE minutes. Remove from oven, pinch the ends together to solidify the joints, let cool. Place on top of the WARM cookies, let cool. Enjoy!

This is what the back looks like.


Love & light,

  1. The “cookie/peppermint heart” treats look de-lish. I am going to try them. I am also trying a recipe that is similar….you have the same peppermint heart, but fill it with milk chocolate candy, nuts, raisins, cranraisins or baby marshmallows. You could even try chocolate and rice krispies…yumm. No need to bake, just melt the chocolate, put in whatever toppings….pour into candy cane heart and cool on parchment paper..
